create roof

Post by julianateclighting » Fri Jun 07, 2019 10:11 am


I need to draw a roof as below, however none of the preset roofs match this.
Any suggestions on how I can create it in another way?

So what I would do is next to my dwg that I would import to draw my building i would also include this sketch below. I would draw it out with an extrusion body and then rotate it to have it in the proper orientation!

Hope this makes sense :D
